This wiki has been updated 7 times since it was first published in September of 2020. A paint roller kit is a convenient way to buy all the painting tools you need at once. It's ideal for those who have never painted before and don't own any equipment. Whether you are changing the colors of interior rooms, doors, trim or exterior surfaces, you need the right kit for the job. A variety of frames, roller sizes and accessory tools are offered, depending on project size and complexity. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

September 15, 2020:

For small jobs, choose either Edward Tools Mini for their small rollers that can get into tight spaces or the Jaina Basic with it's basic rollers and brush for straightforward jobs.

For your big endeavors, choose the Kingorigin Tool Box because it has a lot of tools plus plenty of additional rollers and brushes for exterior or interior jobs. It has a unique large bucket with a handle that you can carry around instead of a traditional paint tray. The bucket holds up to 2.6 gallons of paint so it goes a long way, but some people are more comfortable using a traditional paint tray. With some products we noted that trays sometimes arrive damaged so a bucket may be a stronger solution; otherwise vendors were happy to replace the trays.

If you are handy and looking for meticulous results, you may want to try the Graco 244512. It's a pressure roller that attaches to your spray painter. If you apply steady pressure on the spray gun, too much pressure can build up in the roller. Instead, you have to pulse the spray gun as you need more paint, so it takes some practice to use properly.
